The one hour season finale of How I Met Your Mother is slated to air on CBS in less than 2 weeks. Have you watched the TV show? Have you followed the one where Barney Stinson wears a green suit on St. Patrick's Day?

Put on your green clothes (to avoid unnecessary pinches) and celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Here are a few examples of green food. Enjoy!

I've heard that dressin up in green color brings you good luck when worn on St. Patrick's day. Cooking green food might bring you luck too! I gathered a few dishes that are the perfect color to be part of your St. Patrick's Day celebration. They would make a leprechaun “green” with envy (I think that's a recycled joke). Sorry but I couldn’t resist... Enjoy!

Madeleine Cookie Recipe (Halloween Dessert) Recipe

My husband Lulu loves madeleines. It always reminds him of our trips to Paris. I haven't made any in so long, I thought it was time to surprise him with a fresh batch. I made the madeleines Halloween-friendly by giving them a green color and decorating them with Halloween-themed designs. Pandan is my green food color of choice, and I've flavored and colored a lot of French desserts with it in the past.

Most of the madeleines I've had in America are flat, dry and not very tasty, so I wouldn't be surprised if you're not a fan. The authentic French version must have "the bump" (follow the recipe and you'll find out the secret for fool-proof madeleines) to be truly fluffy and tasty. It creates a light and delicate gourmet cookie that is so pleasant with a hot cup of tea. Not to forget the kid-friendly part, I decorated the madeleines with sprinkles and chocolate chips and wrote spooky messages that for sure will satisfy both big and little kids! And Lulu is most definitely a big kid. He still loves taking his kid sisters trick-or-treating so that he can raid their bags of candy later on. Maybe with these madeleines in the house, he'll stop stealing their sweet treats!

Happy Halloween everyone!

St. Patrick's Day Greenies (Green Brownies Recipe) Recipe

Is there a better ingredient than pandan paste to create a dessert symbolizing St. Patrick's Day? This evening, I used it to make "greenies". Instead of the semi-sweet or dark chocolate brownies traditionally call for, I used white chocolate and flavored the gooey dessert with pecans and a generous amount of pandan, which creates a beautiful green color.

It’s a sweet treat that would make a leprechaun “green” with envy. Sorry, couldn’t resist.  Happy St. Paddy’s Day everyone!
